30. Are you just randomly throwing things out there and seeing what sticks?
Is Taiwan the exact same country as the United States, with the exact same medical system we have now going on in th 90s?! Don't just pick country and use it as a likely example because they were able to do something that you want implemented. It doesn't work that way. In actuality, I'd like to know if Taiwan has an SS and Medicare/Medicaid before the 90s change. We're wholly unique and there are too many problems with medicare to throw in 250 million more people into a system. It's complex and problematic. And the thought of doing reform in such a system at the same time with an influx of 5 times as many people would ensure major FAIL and you'd ask for Dems to just not bother existing because of the massive failure. However, if you're willing to wait----the amount of reform and change with proper change and structural stability could be a 5-10 year wait---without any certainity if it would be a success in the US.
